and decided he was for an individual mandate. >> candidate obama won't tell us what he wants to do on social security and what his ideas are for a grand bargain with the republicans, so i think governor romney on this point, yes, if you take strictly what he said and what he hasn't said it is not cle how itdds up but don't think there any mystery that if he not elected his tax plan would be, would resellable this but there is a way to swear some of the inconsistencies and fill in some of the holes and maybe there wouldn't be as much deficit reduction or maybe not quite -- wouldn't hold harmless people at slightly lower incomes but we don't think this is a huge discrepancy between romney's lack of express ity and the presidents. >> i would say every candidate is inclear about some things and even some inconsistencies, obama did in '08 and he did this time. >> but when you look at what romney has laid out compared to other challengers it is less detailed than what other challengers have laid out and i think that is a legitimate critique for people to make. to repeat i don't think it will driv
and tell you why i have done a good job, i think president obama when he had those opportunities, either punted and didn't want to, you know, go into the rough and tumable with the governor, which is surprising, because i wouldn't have expected that from him. >> rose: thank you, ben, thank you, david. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: great to see you. back in a moment, stay with us. the fundamental principles of democracy rely on an accurate and reliable system of vote counting. despite continued advances in voting technology, zero there are security issues still persist, barbara simons is an expert on electronic voting and on the advisor of the election commission and her book is called broken ballots will your votes counties, welcome. >> thank you very much, it is a pleasure. >> you have been involved in computer science most of your adult left. >> i have a ph.d. >> rose: yes. that qualifies you. how did you get involved in this, though, the technology of voting? >> well, in 2003, a colleague of mine, david dill, a professor at stanford discovered that silicon centrally, santa clara cou
the beginning, and i will tell you why. when you watch when they come in, romney's flag pin lapel was at least 10 times bigger than obama. this is why he is the best one on "the view." sorry "the five,"" the view." he has the giant pin. he will take over the table. >> it is a door opener. i want to talk -- there was a thing that a lot of celebrities were doing. they were going after a yellow icon. >> what things would i cut from spending? first of all i would eliminate all programs by this test if they don't pass it. is the program so critical it is worth bar -- borrowing money to pay for it? obama care is on my list. i apologize, mr. president. i use that term with all respect. >> good. i will get rid of that. i made a stop to pbs. i love big bird. i actually like you too. >> was this a good thing, a bad thing or a thing? >> i after all of the chatter, i thought he said i am going to cut big bird. i am going to cut the subsidee. i like big bird. he said he liked him. i didn't remember that. >> if would be great if he said, no, i will cut big bird like a prison shiv. >> by the way, maybe it is
tell by the response. debate stuff. tom, you said the news here was that there was no news that obama is always like this. i totally agree with. he was not a good debater four years ago. hillary pretty much kicked his ass in every debate they had. >> look at the mccain debate. he is not so special. >> but people forget because he can give a really good speech, so they somehow think it is the same thing. they are two completely different skills. i don't like the way you were looking at me when i was talking that time. >> i have a theory, andy. >> yes, sir. jay president obama -- >> president obama fell into a cool hole. he fell into a cool hole. you know when you are really, really cool and you fall into a cool home? you can't get out? >> this is what annoys me. people say he was too profesorial? no he wasn't. that is a compliment described as a knock. oh he is too smart. he needs to dumb himself down. he is too smart. no good professor would act like he acted in that debate last night. you would walk out of his class. >> what about russell johnson. >> russell t johnson? >> the profess
own tax plan telling president obama and the american people he would not support a plan that cut taxes on the wealthy and raise taxes on the middle class -- that is mathematically impossible. as i read the actual -- like thing romney said, he basically just said huh-uh because i say so. >> wow. >> stephanie: he said so there's no economist that says the plan adds $5 trillion if i say it won't. [ applause ] >> stephanie: all right. wow. okay. so and as i was always saying i thought axelrod said it right. he said the strategy was effective in the short-term vulnerable in the long term. romney gave a good performance, the problem is none of it was rooted in fact. he told the debate medicare is -- mr. etch-a-sketch said that was wrong. the romney camp had to send someone in the spin room right after the debate to say, well he can't really do that. as for taxed obama appeared to be caught off guard by the statement that his plan wouldn't increase taxes. much of romney's performance was rooted in deception from his very first answer when he tried to disown his tax
think he can. i tell you, after that debate and after barack obama's performance, which was staggeringly bad. >> all right. >> no, i mean it. >> okay. >> i'm hearing this from democrats. and this broke through, you know, we always hear about how americans aren't paying attention. they're looking at reality. so this broke through. everybody was talking. but not just how well romney did but how badly the president performed. >> well, just as i think it was premature to declare the race over before, i think it's too soon to say that performance is widely watched as it was and as strong as it was is actually going to move numbers. we've yet to see any numbers move. i think they probably will some and i think that on the other hand did governor romney win the day yesterday in the news cycle given how strong he was thursday night? he didn't decisively win it. he did one event late in the day. he did one event late in the day. look at the evening newscast, the morning papers. >> he doesn't have to win every day. >> i think he has to win most days. he lost about two months of days. i think he's
in new orleans they don't care about as much. >> and where is your dollar? he said this tells me now, we know... this is his mentor. now we know in that church 20 years, the church of god damn america. >> yes. here is what i want to know. a very different obama. saying the american government and country is racist. he's making that accusation. i play a tape and part of it nobody has seen before. people -- it's not a problem. what about the media? why won't they see the news in this? >> they see the news in it. and there is so -- by the way he paid the price for. the reason, one of the reasons he lost last night is he is used to the media that he was not used to being attacked and answered and i love the altitude... >> there is a great line. climate change aand this is the funny thing... >> he doesn't know how to answer? >> he was stunned and never have to answer that question. >> and there is -- he was the president. and so... you have to understand the media has the same lens, they believe in race. they don't get it yet. race ain't what it used to be america. right? >> next 35 days i pr
of the game it doesn't matter. i'll tell you why. all those folks can vote for romney and he still needs those conservative democrats -- >> i have a theory that the people hate obama so much on the right, cynthia, and perhaps center right, they hate him so much they want to have this guy go to the center as long as he wins. your thoughts? >> that's absolutely true, chris, because people like karl rove and billy crystal know that mitt romney is an empty suit, and they can push him around if he wins the presidency. you know that old saying if you stand for nothing you won't stand for anything? well, romney doesn't stand for anything. he doesn't really have any values or principles that he really believes in except he really wants to be president. that's why we saw that new slick version of the romney bot on on wednesday night. this romney bot, they worked on him for hours in the factory making sure he had the right smile, making sure he seemed warm and sincere. well, who was that guy, michael? this is not a guy we had seen on the campaign trail for the last -- >> i can't even take any of this se
